Living in peace and harmony with all around you, is that even possible?
Like there are those that just annoy you, those that choose to irritate you, those that pester you, how do I live with all these sorts of people?
Okay, I got this guy living with me, (I try my best not to get angry at people and live in peace), I can’t sleep a night without this guy increasing the temperature of my blood.
You ever been asked a series of long and stupid questions, you know questions that the only reasonable answer is”……can’t you see it?” How do I answer a series of these without getting angry? It’s pissing.
But I’ve come to realize, one of the most memorable things people will remember you with is the fact that you lived with them and coped with them through all they did. FYI they do know what they are doing, well some of them. But even if you don’t get a reward for living at peace, my book of conduct said in one of the chapters, “Endeavour to live at peace with your neighbours”, so He sees that you coped with that and got over it.
Okay, I know what you’re thinking, it’s not possible right? Trust me it is, I’ve lived amongst a lot of people.
I’ve conducted a series of experiments on my hypothesis and I’ve come to a conclusion that it pays to stay mute on some matters than struggle to prove your point. And all these are to be done without resentment (grudge) in your heart.
Don’t consider these an instruction.
But try this experiment, you’ll need a stopwatch, a calendar and a pen.
In scenery where a friend of yours in enraged in an argument with you or a set of your friends, struggle and do all you can to make sure your point is the dominant one, start your stopwatch after you must have dominated and note how long it would take for your friend to discuss similar or close stuff with you again.
As a test experiment, in the same scenery, suggest your point and leave it as it hangs, you might not need to start your stopwatch at all to note the time.
Point: It pays to live in peace and harmony. (And it’s possible)
